Free music: Wilco covering Woody Guthrie …

without comments

In browsing the website of Americana band Wilco — which recently performed at The Tennessee Theatre, a show reviewed here by yours truly — for information on the band’s new album, I discovered a free download of “The Jolly Banker” by Woody Guthrie. You can download that by going here. As a caveat — the band kindly asks for donations to support the Woody Guthrie Foundation and Archives; there’s a button to offer a few bucks for that worthy cause while you’re getting a free tune.

The new album, by the way, is simply titled “Wilco (the album),” and will be released June 30 on Nonesuch Records. Here’s the track listing:

Wilco (the song)
Deeper Down
One Wing
Bull Black Nova
You And I
You Never Know
Country Disappeared
Solitaire
I’ll Fight
Sonny Feeling
Everlasting Everything
